Badhaai Do Movie Story

The movie Badhaai Do , directed by Harshavardhan Kulkarni is an upcoming comedy  billed as a spiritual sequel to the National Award-winning 2018 hit “Badhaai Ho!”. Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Badhaai Ho went on to become a major hit in 2018 and also won critical acclaim. The film’s makers are now keen on taking the franchise forward with Badhaai Do. Featuring Rajkummar Rao and Bhumi Pednekar in lead roles, the film will be as quirky and as much a family drama as the first film, claims the film’s director Harshavardhan Kulkarni.  The two leads will be sharing screen space for the first time.

Badhaai Ho was the story of a middle-aged couple, parents to two sons, with one being a 25-year old, who discover that they are expecting another child. Facing resistance from their boys and taunts from the man’s aged mother, who stays with them, the film takes the viewers on the journey from resistance to acceptance.

Where as Badhai do will be highlighting Lavender Marriage. The trailer of the movie is showcasing such kind of contractual marriage for the society.The main issue addressed in the movie is the awareness and acceptance towards LGTBQ community. The two leads of the movie belong to the LGBTQ+ community and struggle to make their families and the society aware of it. This film, like the original, revolves around a social subject — homosexuality — but tells the story in a light-hearted manner.

Usually North-eastern people are misrepresented in Bollywood but in this movie ,north-eastern actress Chum Darang is playing Bhumi’s girlfriend role which is so refreshing. ‘Badhaai Do’ also addresses the constant pressure in the Indian families for the couple to have a child. It is portrayed in a comical way in the movie. The parents of the couple can be seen discussing within themselves about the couple not having a child. They keep on asking Rao and Pednekar about their family planning. The families start to assume different reasons for the situation, all of which is represented in a comical and raw form in the movie.

Talking about the choice of his actors, Harshavardhan told Mumbai Mirror in an interview: “Their characters are unique in that they incorporate comedy, certain goofiness and display some quirks. I could see only Raj and Bhumi playing them. And I’m confidence that the explosive chemistry between them will combust on screen.”

Badhaai Ho touched on a sensitive subject of parental pregnancy but did so with gentle humour and won over the audience. Harshvardhan said how “every story has to have a heart and Badhaai Do has a very big heart.”

In Badhaai Do, while Bhumi will be seen playing a PT teacher who aspires to play handball for the country, Rajkummar will play a tough cop. Giving more details, the film’s director said: “We’re also tapping a big social issue with this film. It’s too early to reveal details. All I can say is that Badhaai Do is as much a family entertainer as Badhaai Ho, only the world we’re creating is becoming more diverse. It moves from a small town to a bigger one and then, on to something else. There’s a lot of colour and drama.”

“Witness the Atrangi wedding Satrangi setting of the year in the month of love! Red heart #BadhaaiDoTrailer out now – #BadhaaiDo coming out In Cinemas on 11th Feb, 2022,” the tweet read.

“Badhaai Do”, which will be distributed worldwide by Zee Studios, has been delayed multiple times in the past owing to the coronavirus pandemic.

The film is expected to begin in 2021. Talking about his character in the film, Rajkummar had said earlier in a statement, “I am happy things are picking pace and the wheel is moving again. Badhaai Do is a special film for me. I am glad to take up this nuanced character who has layers of conflicts to resolve in and around him.

As far as preparations are concerned, I have my own process of preparing a character and also this time it is the setting of this character in Badhaai Do that makes it unique. The audience is in for a surprise, which will unfold with time. I am happy to reconnect with the audience on special occasion of Badhaai Ho anniversary, the film was an absolute delight and one of my most favourites.”

According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, the film would be about a lavender marriage. The term refers to a marriage of convenience to conceal the sexual orientation of the partners involved from the society. That would also mean that Rajkummar would play a gay man, while Bhuumi would play a lesbian. Like the first film, this film will also focus on societal stigmas and breaking free from it.

The film will roll in 2021. The plot does sound interesting and novel, isn’t it? Meanwhile, Rajkummar Rao just wrapped the shoot of Hum Do Humaare Do alongside KKriti Sanonn in Chandigarh, while Bhumi is awaiting the release of her film, Durgavati.
